JULY 30, 2009 -- AFL Telecommunications (search Lightwave for AFL Telecommunications) has introduced a new drop cable storage unit (DCSU) designed to store and organize the slack from a fiber drop left at a fiber distribution terminal (FDT). The DCSU can also be used for the organization or storage of any unused multi-fiber drop in the placing of a multi-port terminal from VATS splicers.
Manufactured with weather-resistant aluminum with a baked acrylic enamel finish, the DCSU contains a keyed bracket mount designed to prevent twisting and to manage up to 12 fiber drops when laid flat into the raceway with minimal slack required at the terminal. With spring-type lockable fingers to hold fiber drops and cable, no tie-wraps are required.
The DCSU is supplied with strand mount hardware that meets Telcordia specifications. Optional hardware to mount to poles or in below-grade hand holes is available. Galvanized strand clamping devices accommodate ¼-inch to 7/16-inch strand and meet ASTM specifications A153 and B695. The patent-pending DCSU's are stackable using an optional longer bolt.
